NCLB set forth a certain criteria to be met, but allowed the states to determine how they would accomplish it. Therefore, each state handles assessment and accountability differently. This makes it hard to show success or failure of the programs. Supporters and critics alike can cite research that supports their opinion. My opinion of NCLB is it is flawed, developmentally inappropriate, ill funded, ←and→ leaving more students, teachers, ←and→ schools behind than ever before because The tests have turned into the objective of classroom instruction rather than the measure of teaching ←and→ learning.
Beneficiaries are those who stand to gain something as a direct result of the effort. Targets are those who may or may not stand to gain personally, or whose actions represent a benefit to a particular population. Some examples are: • A particular population • People experiencing or at risk for a particular problem or condition • People involved or participants in a particular organization or institution • People whose behavior the efforts aim to change • Policy makers and agencies that are targets of advocacy efforts Secondary Stakeholders – Those directly involved with or responsible for beneficiaries or targets of the effort. Those whose jobs or lives might be affected by the process or results of the effort. Some examples are: • Family members, friends • Schools and their employees • Medical professionals • Social workers • Health and human service organizations • Community volunteers • Police and other law enforcement agencies • Employers Key Stakeholders – Those who can devise, pass, and enforce laws and regulations that may either fulfill the goals of the effort or directly cancel them, those who can influence others and those with an interest in the outcome of an effort.
Given the large number of training methods available to you, this task may seem difficult. One way to choose a training method is to compare methods. The first step in choosing a method is to identify the type of learning outcome that you want training to influence. These outcomes include verbal information, intellectual skills, cognitive strategies, attitudes and motor skills. Training methods may influence one or several learning outcomes.
Education has dumbed down but there are so many different aspects of the situation, fingers pointed on why this has happened. Reason of media, social, funding, whether you when to public or private schools, the extra curricular activities schools were offering. I don’t believe that just one of these subjects are to blame, but a combination of them all. Due to the No Child Left Behind Act and the Instrument to Measure Standards tests, which most states have, schools are now micro-managed by state and federal regulations. Teachers are told what they will teach and how they will teach.
Members from different parts of the world that belong to an International project team can come across misunderstanding because of cultural differences. The West Europe district with different work styles and attitudes can diverge across parts of Europe. Understanding sessions can focus on addressing the problems dealing with attitudes. Diversity was introduced to all over the world to prevent discrimination and harassment. Kilbride, K. (1997).
In sociological terms, however, individual career development is also a product of the constraints on and barriers to choices that individuals might prefer to make. Such constraints can occur because of limitations on individual choice that arise from political conditions or from economic circumstances. Sociological effects on choice also can be seen in family and cultural influences. Families with differing educational and socioeconomic backgrounds tend to reinforce different educational and occupational goals and belief systems related to career choice. Nations and cultural groups also differ in how particular types of education, work, or family roles are valued, and these perceptions tend to be internalized by group members and reflected in their choices.
As with the educational goals set out in the document, these initiatives provide a good basis for development of the education system as a whole in achieving the right outcomes. However, once looked at in greater length, there are elements in the ‘Commitments to Action’ that lack detail. Many of the actions are also very hard to implement and are at times idealistic and impractical. The current decentralised education framework (as opposed to a national curriculum) is also a barrier to the implementation of these actions. Considerations in relation to funding should be explored throughout the document.
I do not think that every school should switch to this calendar just because a lot of schools in our country are. Our country is made up of different people, beliefs, views, and religions. So why not have different ways of teaching? With people learning in different ways, they are learning in the way that they, in their school district or their state, believe that they should be learning. I think that every school district or at least every state should be in control of how their institutions are ran.
These standards need to be able to fit in all schools and some may have to be tailored, to the fact that each state is different (Rutherford, David. J., & Boehn, Richard. G. (Nov. – Dec. 2004)). Social Studies education is well defined through standards and assessments, but will the teachers be able to align with them. Even though the standards are in place, it is almost impossible to get through the whole institution process and they are also constrained by the high-stakes tests (Miso, Thomas., & Patterson, Nancy., & Dopen,
